Max wants to grow his hair really long in the back for Halloween, so he can dress up as a rock star, and maybe spike up the top? He spends hours looking in the mirror after his bath, spiking his wet hair and trying to decide just how long he wants to grow it. Shoulder length? Waist length?
He asked me in great excitement and trepidation if it would be okay, and whether they would mind at school. He will cut it short again, he says, after Halloween.
I told him to go right ahead and grow his hair long, and I would send a note to school explaining about Halloween.
